Now that Sony announced the low pricing for the PSP the question I think many gadget fans are asking themselves, should I import a Sony PSP from Japan?

IGN has a good article on this topic and answers my biggest question: Will the PSP play US or European games? IGN has a statement from Sony that for Games the Sony PSP is region-free. This does not apply for Movies and Music media.

The two stores I found so far, which look reliable (no guarantees) are Lik-Sang and Play-Asia. Lik-Sang still did not set a price. Play-Asia has set the price for the PSP-1000 at $219.90 and the for the PSP Value Pack at $269.90. There is still some time until December 12th to make the decision to get a PSP early, even if the first games will be in Japanese only.
